In a room of red, charged with the energy of electro-magnetic desire and the vibration of short-circuited sensation - a female figure calculates formulae and constructs models for a series of erotic equations. The medea Dark|Room is a laboratory installation of performative experiments modulated, manipulated and controlled by the persona of Medea. Medea: dark matter events is an on-going research project that utilises the Medea myth to investigate thematic strands specifically related to female sexuality, the neurobiology of creativity and the physics of eroticism. The current research is being conducted through Theron Schmidt at King’s College London, as a cross-departmental artists’ residency. Julia is a theatre artist working with an interplay of performance, video, photography, extreme garments and sculptural objects. Recent works include: The Divine Trilogy, (London, Glasgow, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Croatia, Belgium and Italy). meta-Family (Brazil, London, Brussels, Ljubljana) and Medea: dark matter events, an on-going research project (DeptfordX 2011/12 and What Matters Festival, London). Dark|Room ambient by Andrew Poppy.
